Low-Tech “Lovember”: Reorienting to Jesus

This month we’ll be taking a step back from our normal rhythms in order to draw closer to God and one another. As our lives are filled with every manner of screen and electronic device, often out of necessity for work, schooling, or relationships, the pervasive “everywhere, always” nature of media technology can have a severe affect on our temperaments, not to mention our walk of faith. It has become very easy to feel harried, overwhelmed, and powerless, not to mention very easy to waste a bunch of time!

So the goal of this month, and the teachings, writings, and disciplines we will embark on together, is to get back to the basics: that instead looking to the next video or blog post, we will “… hunger and thirst for righteousness,” (Matthew 5:6) and instead of adrenaline-fueled spurts of sporadic activity and subsequent crashes, we will “run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)
